How old is your starter ??? From the father's shop in Ohio ? That shop may not be in existence.

Daryl may be of some help if he is able

That was a common problem with the aluminum nose piece. We had a least 2 do the same thing. Bad part is, if the piece goes down into the engine, it is very hard to retrieve the piece. Could be a real son of a gun to get out. We don't use those starters anymore for that one reason. We have never seen an original cast iron nose piece come apart or break.

"We have never seen an original cast iron nose piece come apart or break."

That's because they're steel not cast iron.

With all due respect Ron, I have been of the opinion that they are cast steel.

... or at least ductile iron.

Jerry
Perhaps I am wrong, but the information on the Ford part drawing and Record of Change cards I have for part number T-1867 indicates "Malleable Cast Iron"

Ron,

O.K., that's ductile iron in today's language. That makes sense. Thanks!
